Many of our clients simple need a few minor web sites fixes. If you need to change some text, change out some pictures or have some other minor website updates we can handle that. If your web site needs more detailed fixes and updates or a complete redesign we can take care of that for you as well.
For customers who just need to occasional minor updates, in most cases these updates can be done quickly and for as little as $80.

Looking for a more robust update and web site fixes that include the non-visible elements that search engines and screen readers take into consideration as well? Start with a web site audit / code inspection.
We can audit the underlying code of your web site and create a list of fixes that will help your site rank better with search engines. Every web site is different, some simply require some additional tags like canonical tags, and alt tags that may be missing. A surprising number of web sites, even those from professional design companies, are missing these elements (and others) which are essential to proper search engine indexing, as well helpful to those who visit your site with screen readers (web browsers that read the page with audio). Sometimes we find big mistakes with the underlying code, sometimes there are just a few changes that are needed to make your site better.
We will look for html errors that may be affecting your site, and best practices for providing the best end user experiences with different devices.
A web site audit / code inspection for the average web site costs $300. For web sites with more than a dozen pages or lots of externally loaded assets (third party videos, tracking scripts, and others) – there may be an additional charge.
After your web site code inspection and audit is complete, we will have a list of suggested changes, and the associated costs, that will enhance your end user experience and how search engine “spiders” see and rank your web site.
You can have a web site that looks great on your monitor, yet search engines see big holes in html code, or worse some meta information could be missing or wrong, and you would never see it using your web browser.
More and more we are seeing that as competition grows in certain areas, the small things really add up to give a higher position in the search results, as well as making your web site an excellent resource for your customers. Many of these small things were not a big focal point in the past, but they are big factors in determining your search results ranking and end user experience these days.
Some case studies / web site issues others have had that may help you
One of our clients found a stock template from a big named company, had their site setup and everything looks fine on their desktop computer at the office. They never knew to look at the underlying code to see what the web site was telling search engines. This one client had a decent looking site for a dentist office in “town A” – the site on the screen looked fine, yet when we did a code audit on the site, we found that the “meta description tag” said “dental professional for city D” (which was in a different state) – sure the design looked fine on the screen, but the underlying template code was telling search engines that they were not actually in the town they wee located, even though the visible text on the screen gave the proper address.
Another client was focused on having a modern looking site that looked good on his 27 inch HD monitor in the office.
We started our with some basic design elements, like the popular “960 grid” to get things started. Adding text and images, choosing colors, names of pages, all those important things went to the back burner as they constantly focused on the “picture at the top is too small”. After making change after change to the making the image bigger, we finally realized that the screen they were using to view the new web site design samples what set at a 1920 pixel wide setting. It’s great to want to have a new design that looks great on a large monitor, but we also need to consider the average size screen that the average user is using, and also consider the smaller screens like phones and tablets.
We ended up with a great looking design that hit that sweet spot of 1350 pixels, which is a resolution that a good portion of internet users is surfing the web with as of summer 2013. With that established we were able to put together the rest of the content and make sure that our client’s goal of having a site that looks good on larger screens was established. Then we took that content and layout and started coding the design to display well on the larger screen, but also adapt it’s elements for smaller screens.
The average business owner does not know about code choices affecting page speed and search engine indexing. Our web site audit can find these issues and we can get them fixed for you. We have seen many great designs that look good on the screen, but have major issues in the underlying code that affect how the site is viewed on multiple devices, and how search engines index the content and decide on the website’s ranking.
